COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Breaking down the positives along with a few negatives that will have coach Urban Meyer's attention after a 31-16 win over Central Florida on Saturday.
Greg Bartram/US PresswireOrhian Johnson tipped one ball that was intercepted by Travis Howard and also made a red-zone interception himself against UCF.
- Miller (over)time: There are justifiable concerns about just how much work Braxton Miller had to do to help the Buckeyes pull out a win. But that doesn't take anything away from the effort the sophomore quarterback turned in with another dynamic performance that didn't do anything but improve his chances of national attention and contention for awards. Miller was responsible for all four touchdowns, including three of them as a rusher, and his passing numbers were also much better in his second outing in the spread offense as he completed 18 of his 24 attempts. There was an interception and there were bad exchanges in the option game, but the volume of yardage and the points he's putting on the board are invaluable.
